iPOPY researchers are committed to explore the potential of foodscapes in which young people gather, since they are our consumers of tomorrow. We invite researchers, policy makers and practitioners to a conference on novel strategies for climate mitigation, sustainability and healthy eating in public foodscapes.
The conference will address important topics on why public food services should consider environmental issues as a part of their menu planning, and how to achieve this objective â€“ from practician to becoming a practitioner. Further, we will explore two different foodscapes, respectively eating at large scale cultural events, and eating at school. Both are social settings where food is consumed and there is a potential for significant long-term shaping of food habits. Hence, such settings may act as an important way to educate consumers of tomorrow to both healthy and sustainable food patterns.
